Bio Photo Born in North Platte, Nebraska. Currently live in Bossier City, Louisiana.

Please feel free to request transfer of memorials. I grant management of memorials that I have created, to both family and friends. As long as their is positive intent, I have no problem relinquishing management of memorials. The whole point of graving is remembering those gone before us. This is information to be shared, not hoarded.

Here's a little personal dittie that I have written about graving

"Tis rock and stone and fence and mound I seek.
A lonely grave on a grassy knoll, inside my heart I keep.

A grandfather, not once but twice my great,
was buried there a'fore my eyes opened
for the first time.

An Auntie took me there, so long ago. I myself have been there, so I know
That there he rests, among the hills, and calves, and grass, and sky, and wind.

But I myself like him, am now so old, I can't remember all the stories told. Nor where exactly lies this grassy grave. Where a man once homesteaded and stood so brave.

I want to put a flower on his stone, to let him know that he is not alone. Round the bend, I go and carry with, My honor and my love, for Grandpa Smith.

But sun is going down, and I don't see, the very place I seek where he should be. Perhaps tomorrow will find me, finding him. If not, the grass keeps blowing in the wind."

In memory of Edmond Elliot Smith (1840-1908)

Harriet M. Groves Gilford
I read your write-up on Harriet M. Groves Gilford and you mention her parents were William L Groves and Tabitha Marston. I believe her father was Thomas Groves born 1769. William L. Groves born 1807 was Harriet's brother.

No, I am not related. I'm not sure what information I sent you before as I didn't receive a copy of the submittal. But, if I didn't mention it, I maintain a website of historical information relating to the Farnam-Moorefield-Ingham area, including obituaries and homestead records. The homestead records is where I found that your Edmond had filed for the homestead in 1898, died in 1903 and the homestead final papers were filed by Ellen in 1905. The link to the homestead record on my site is: - at the bottom of this record is a link to the actual documents on If you don't have a subscription, I could download the documents and send to you.

Mom's first cousin put up a family tree on
I have a tree also but have not added family as far back as he did. I don't know if you can see it without signing up.

RE: Urias Hollenbeck
Hi Connie,

I have taken over my mother's extensive genealogy files. In them i found that picture of Urias's grave. I have no idea where she got it. She had extensive communication with people on many family lines and usually kept very good records. But that photo must have fell out of the envelope it came in.

RE: Urias Hollenbeck

I found that picture among my mother's huge library of genealogy material. I don't know where she got it, but most likely from another descendant of Urias. She corresponded with many people and historical societies for about 30 years.

I see on James' memorial on findagrave that you left a note that you are his granddaughter?
Our Baird ancestors were born around Derry, Westmorland Co PA also. Thomas Baird is my husband's 4x greatgrandfather. Is there any Thomas Bairds in your line? We can't find Thomas parents' name. We believe he married Jane Irwin....
